Pakistan’s former premier Imran Khan accuses Gen Bajwa of playing ‘double game’ against his govt

Islamabad:

Pakistan’s ousted prime minister Imran Khan has accused former army chief Gen (retd.) Qamar Javed Bajwa of playing “double game” against his government and said that he committed a “big mistake” by extending the tenure of then military chief in 2019.

Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, made the comments during an interview with a local TV channel on Saturday where he also regretted that he put his trust in the then army chief Gen (retd.) Bajwa.

“I would believe in everything General Bajwa would tell me because our interests were the same… that we had to save the country,” said 70-year-old Khan, who was ousted from power through a no-confidence motion in April this year.
